A demonym should be added to the table[edit]

A demonym is missing from the table. I'd say, it's fairly significant. Is it Taipeian?--Adûnâi (talk) 17:23, 3 August 2017 (UTC)

I've seen "Taipeinese" (like Shanghainese and Hebeinese), "Taipeiren" (based on the Chinese demonym 台北人; Táiběi rén, and "Taipeier" (like Beijinger) but none of these seem to have gained wide-spread acceptance. "Taipeier" gets the most Google hits at a paltry 52k and did show up in The China Post in 2016. I don't think there is a widely accepted English demonym for Taipei.

Greater China vs. Chinese speaking world[edit]

In the 3rd paragraph of the lead, I'm reverting Chinese-speaking world to Greater China in this sentence:

Taipei is the political, economic, educational, and cultural center of Taiwan island, and one of the major hubs of Chinese-speaking world Greater China.

According to Greater China, "Greater China... is a term used to refer to Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan." "Chinese-speaking world" (which redirects to Sinophone) by contrast can mean specifically "the overseas Chinese regions of diaspora outside of Greater China" (emphasis added). As such, "Greater China" is the better term for this context. Phlar (talk) 21:06, 4 October 2017 (UTC)
